So it turns out that despite earlier reports, the shooter did not use the media's favorite murder weapon - the dreaded high capacity, high velocity, fully semi-automatic, big scary looking weapon of war AR-15 style "assault rifle".
Instead, he just used a revolver pistol and a sawed-off shotgun (which is already illegal in the US btw) that he stole from his dad to carry out all that carnage. Oh, and he also made improvised explosives like pipe bombs and pressure cookers that he had planned to set off (or just failed to do so).
Slim pickings for the media and gun control lobby this time around... this'll probably be forgotten about by Monday.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.
